SNOW REMOVAL REMINDER

The department would like to take this opportunity...while it's 23 degrees and snowing...to remind our residents of the requirement to keep the sidewalks clear from snow, slush and ice

Sheridan Municipal Code States:
The owners, agents and occupants of any house, warehouse, store, tenement house or any other building, and the ground belonging thereto or occupied by them, and the owner and agent of any vacant lot within the city, shall keep theSnowy street sidewalks, whether paved or not, in front of and adjoining such property, clean, and after any fall of snow, shall cause the snow and all slush and ice to be immediately removed from the sidewalk fronting their respective lot into the carriageway of the street. (R.O. 1937, § 761.)

Currently, municipal code allows residents to place snow from the sidewalks into the street. This ordinance is currently being reviewed for modification that will require that the snow be placed on the property from which it is being removed, and not the street. There will be certain exemptions to this such as the downtown business district, or areas where placing snow on the property is simply not possible. Should that ordinance review pass the third reading...the department will let the public know immediately. Thank you all for your cooperation with the swift removal of snow. It is important for our pedestrians to have a safe area to walk on in the winter months as well.

Car Accidents in Winter

How to Stay Safe After a Winter Car Accident


The days are short. The air is cold. Roads are often slick with rain, snow or ice.

It’s winter driving season and, while most people know what to do to try to avoid an accident, many don’t know what to do after one. It’s vital knowledge to have, because the aftermath of a crash can be just as dangerous as the crash itself — especially when it’s cold and snowy.

Here are five things to do (or not do) if you’re in an accident this winter to help keep yourself and others safe:

Make sure everyone’s OK — then get off the road if you can. The safety of everyone involved in a crash is the first concern, of course. So, check on the occupants of each vehicle and call for emergency assistance if it’s needed. Then, if the vehicles are drivable, get them off the road as soon – and as carefully – as possible.

Stay in your car if you can’t safely move away. If you can’t get your car off the road, but you can get off the road, wait until there’s no traffic around and then move well out of the way. Otherwise, stay in the car so you’re protected from other vehicles.

Stay visible — and warm. Turn on your hazard lights and put up road flares so other vehicles know something is wrong. And, grab your vehicle emergency kit (you have one, right?) for blankets and extra clothing. If you’ve run off the road and you’re still in your car, make sure nothing is blocking your exhaust pipe. Otherwise carbon monoxide may build up.

If you’re stranded, stay put. Running off the road in a remote area is scary, but resist the urge to try to walk for help. You risk getting lost, especially during a storm, if you set off on foot.

See a crash? Don’t always stop to help. Being a Good Samaritan could cause more problems than it solves. So, if those involved aren’t in immediate danger, call 911 and let the professionals help with medical aid and traffic control.

It’s not always easy, but keeping a cool head after an accident will do more than help everyone get through a stressful situation — it will help keep everyone safer, too.




2020 DEER MANAGEMENT ARCHERY PROGRAM

The Sheridan Police Department, in conjunction with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, would like to take this opportunity to inform area residents that the Deer Management Plan implemented by the City of Sheridan in 2007, will again be continuing for the 2020 hunting season. All parties interested in bow hunting within the city limits must first register with the Sheridan Police Department. Registration documents can be found online Picture of deeron the police department website under “Media Releases/Activity Summary” or picked up at the police department.   Make sure to turn the “Signed Permission Slip” in to the Sheridan Police Department before you start hunting. Any member of the department can assist residents with this registration. As a reminder, the Deer Management Plan is a bow hunting only opportunity and persons choosing to hunt privately owned land must first secure permission from the landowner. Additional information regarding what areas of the City of Sheridan are open for bow hunting can be found on the website or at the Sheridan Police Department. Remember, all Wyoming Game and Fish Regulations apply to the Deer Management Plan. Thank you and good luck this fall.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL THE SHERIDAN POLICE DEPARTMENT AND ASK FOR THE PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER – (SHERIDAN) 672-2413

Operating a vehicle on a notarized bill of sale or title


Questions often arise about when a person can drive a vehicle on a bill of sale or title.  The attached document has the guidelines that authorizes such.  Understand that you may be pulled over by a law enforcement officer if no visible registration is observed on your vehicle.  If all your documents are in order, you'll be on your way in a matter of minutes so don't fret.  Please do not tape your notarized title in the window of your vehicle.  It will not prevent you from being pulled over but it may prevent your vehicle's theft.  

As always, if you have further questions, please call at any time.
